Gun Slingin is a daughter of the historic young sire Gun Runner, who was a Horse of the Year on the racetrack and is now re-writing the record books at stud, with six first-crop G1 winners to his credit, including Eclipse Champion Echo Zulu, Preakness winner Early Voting, Taiba, Cyberknife, Society and Gunite.
Gun Slingin is out of $300,000 yearling buy Easy Tap, a winner at 2 and the dam of Venezuelan G1 winner & champion Tap Daddy (a SW/G3P in the States), as well as of black-type placed Total Tap and the exciting 2YO of 2022 Disarm, who was a TDN Rising Star breaking his maiden at Saratoga, off of a promising debut earlier in the summer. There’s a Gun Runner colt of 2022 to come, and Easy Tap was bred back to Silver State for 2023.
Gun Slingin’s third dam, White Jasmine, produced four stakes winners including G3 winner Til Forbid (who is the ancestress of graded winners Scoop, Sara Louise, Just Louise, and exciting 2022 G2 winner Forbidden Kingdom), as well as the stakes-placed Coragil, also a multiple graded producer.
Gun Slingin will be bred for the first time in 2023.
